  • Patent number: 10514334
    Abstract: To show a highly accurate cell measurement method. A cell measurement method comprises: a step of staining a cultured target cell with a dye; a step of obtaining a first image and a second image which are transmission images for a first light and a second light to which the dye has different absorbance; a step of dividing each of the first image and the second image into a plurality of divided regions and comparing the first image and the second image for each of the divided regions so as to eliminate noises; and a step of integrating an indicator of a cell amount in each of the divided regions in the images from which the noises were eliminated so as to evaluate a target cell amount.

  • Publication number: 20190256885
    Abstract: [Problem] To provide a highly accurate cell measurement method. [Solution] A cell measurement method comprising: a step of staining target cells with a dye; an image obtaining step for obtaining an image of the target cells; a discrimination step for discriminating the target cells from contaminating cells by applying multi-stage binarization processing to the image; a step of eliminating noises due to the contaminating cells from the image based on the result of the discrimination step; and a step of evaluating an amount of target cells by integrating an index value of cell amount in the image from which the contaminating cells have been eliminated.

  • Publication number: 20190217438
    Abstract: A substrate processing apparatus which causes a processing tape to abut against a processing object, including: a tape supply reel configured to supply the processing tape; a tape recovery reel configured to recover the processing tape; a recovery motor configured to apply a torque to the tape recovery reel; a tape feed motor configured to feed the processing tape between the tape supply reel and the tape recovery reel; and a control unit configured to control the tape feed motor, wherein the control unit controls the torque of the recovery motor depending on a change in an outer diameter of a roll of the processing tape wound by the tape recovery reel such that tension applied to the processing tape is constant, using a feed length of the tape fed by the tape feed motor and a thickness of the processing tape.

  • Patent number: 10354900
    Abstract: Disclosed is a substrate transfer apparatus including: a pair of hands facing with each other; an opening/closing mechanism configured to move the pair of hands symmetrically in an opening/closing direction; a driving unit configured to transmit a power to the opening/closing mechanism; and a controller configured to control an operation of the driving unit. The opening/closing mechanism includes: a rotating body configured to rotate depending on a moving amount of the pair of hands in the opening/closing direction, and a sensor configured to detect a rotating amount of the rotating body. The controller controls an operation of the driving unit based on a signal from the sensor.
